I'm a sole trader who is receiving job keeper. I'm about to start a 12 month full time contract as my sole trader income is still near zero. Can I continue to claim job keeper once my contract starts as it will help pay for rent, power and other while I working. I intend to keep my business going just need the extra income

Hi @MrB13

 

If you were an eligible Sole Trader and receiving JobKeeper payments as of 1 March 2020 from your Sole Trader business and you get any type of new employment (casual, full time, whatever), you are still eligible to receive JobKeeper via your Sole Trader ABN.

 

All the best!
